    7mm-08 120grain Nosler Ballistic Tips and vhitavouri n140

    I picked up some 120 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips for my 7-08 from Mike Norris at the Stalking Show last week. I've been going to give these a go for a while, anyone got any Load Data they are willing to share for Vhitavouri N140 or Varget
    Thanks in anticipation

    Reloading centre at Hodgdon shows :

    120 GR. NOS BT Hodgdon Varget .284" 2.800" 42.5 2996 43,800 CUP 45.0 3117 49,900 CUP

    Starting load of 42.5, max of 45. Would be interested in your results with this bullet, planning on picking up a few boxes of blems in the summer while stateside.

    Hi Baconbuttie
    yes, I got that data of Hogdons site already, it's Vhitavouri data I'm really after or anyone's reall world data on either powders. By all means I'll let you know how I get on with them.

    Products - Lapua

    Lapua states 42 - 46grns for a 120grn bullet

    I run 120v-max's at 42grns/viht140 for roughly 2950ft/ps.

    Be careful near the top end of Viht's load data as I ran into pressure and thumb primeable cases after 5 loadings with 46grns in lapua cases.
    About 20thou from the lands should show an accuracy node.

    I have a useful load at 45gr n140 with Nosler BT 120gr. .00030" off lands worked for me. However, RL15 is, if anything, better in my rifle.

    Usual health warnings apply! Work up gradually and do not exceed max load.
